University Gynecologic Oncology and Dr. Yap have good reputations as technicians, but I found the office to be an empathy free zone. Dr. Yap must be knowledgeable, but she and her staff do not acknowledge that patients, especially first time patients, are scared. I found another practice.

Clearly knowledgeable and an excellent surgeon, but rather cool and detached. She doesn't seem to be into that "team" stuff that they describe in their pamphlet. If you're a frightened first time cancer patient you might need more warmth than she's able to offer.
